being hybrid its color may be different.I have a purpleish-pink coneflower and one of the seedheads I sowed was a paler pink color.so I moved it to another bed(It looks horrible.I moved it when we were in the 90s with no rainfall)but it should look great blooming next year and will have the BES to help make it stand out.I think its put out 3 blooms since being moved.I like yours though.I'd love to try out a seedhead for WS.From what I've read...............
It don't realiably produce double blooms the 1st year(I assume the alfalfa spike)
can take 2 year for the roots to establish.
Does it smell?have fragrance?
